Warm and sunny weather continues

The weather will continue to warm up over the next few days, with bright and sunny conditions for many.

High pressure is set to dominate, with temperatures continuing to rise. Highs of 24°C are possible today (Thursday) and could reach up to 26°C in the south on Saturday.

Although the majority of the UK will enjoy this fine weather, showers and more unsettled conditions are likely in the far north and northwest. 

UV levels 

With the warm weather brings an increase in UV levels. Over the next few days, they are expected to reach moderate to high across the UK. It is important that, if you are in an area that is particularly sunny over the next few days, you take steps to ensure that you and your family are protected from these increased UV levels.

Turning unsettled into next week

Weather conditions are expected to return to a more unsettled pattern as we head into the new working week. Rain and showers will start to move in from the west, due to a developing low from the Atlantic. 

Deputy Chief Meteorologist Tony Wisson said: “Many places will start fine and warm on Sunday, though it is likely to become cloudier from the west or southwest during the day. This will be accompanied by scattered showers, which could be heavy with thunder.

“On Monday we're likely to see more widespread and longer-lived spells of rain, some of which will be heavy and thundery. This will also lead to a much cooler feel to the day.”
